    Unknown film edge marking "400-271" - any idea what it is?

    I seem to have acquired a bulk film loader at some point in the past -- I honestly can't remember when or where -- that has some mystery B/W film in it. So I loaded 10-12 exposures into a cassette and shot them off, hoping that there would be a name in the sprocket margin identifying the film after development. Sadly, no name on the length that I developed, only the code "400-271".

    FYI, I developed it in D-23 1:1, having chosen to rate the film at ASA 100 and bracketing from from -2 to +3 stops. I appears the film is best somewhere between 200 and 400.

    I canít go develop another, longer length because Iím now in SW Asia and the bulk loader is in Virginia. So itís not as if Iím going to be using this film any time soon, but nonethelessÖ

    Does anyone know what film this might be?

    No dx code that I can see. A perceptive reader has sent me a PM pointing out that as the DIN speed for ISO 400 film is 27, this is probably a somewhat different way of marking that the film is ISO 400/DIN 27. I imagine that we'll get no further with this until I get back to Virginia toward the end of the year and shoot off a longer roll.

    It's fuji neopan 400, 110%

    I'd recognize that edge printing anywhere. Same as on the LegacyPro re-label of it, too.

    I thought that as well to begin with but the LegacyPro, at least, has a narrow, solid arrow and is labelled 400-36 (i.e ISO and number of exposures) and has "275" printed separately above every other frame. I can't speak to Fuji Neopan 400, although I'll finally get to find out for myself in a few weeks time.

    Sorry to not be of more help, Trask. I suspect you're right about needing a slightly larger sample, although I'd have thought a dozen frames should have shown you all of the edge markings existent.

    Fuji doesn't always use the solid arrows...



    I'm positive it's Neo 400.

    I agree Neopan 400. Which is now getting rarer by the minute as freezers get loaded up in reaction to the recent announcement. Just ordered 50 more rolls myself last night. BIN asking prices on eBay already going higher it seems...

    An Epson Photo Perfection 3200. To get the numbers along the edge I had to lay the negative strip directly on the glass and hold flat with a Better Scanning glass.

    Why do you ask?

    OK, I'm willing to believe that it's Neopan 400 -- thanks, everyone!

    400PR.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
